After the critical success of his first novel, "Morvern Callar, Alan Warner has written an extraordinary, stirring sequel to Morvern's odyssey, confirming him as one of the most original, uniquely gifted writers to have appeared this decade.
An air-crash investigator haunts the hinterlands of an island--around the isolated honeymoon hot spot, the Drome Hotel--gathering the debris from fallen planes that the islanders have fashioned into makeshift sheds and fences; but what kind of jigsaw is he really assembling as he paces the runway?
A young woman makes landfall on the island, crossing the interior to arrive at the Drome Hotel: desperate, strange--and strangely familiar.
Meanwhile, DJ Cormorant is trying to organize The Big One, a rave on the adjacent airstrip, and from all over "These Demented Lands come twisted characters, converging for one final Saturday night at the Drome Hotel.
